with senator mcconnell the meeting was set up last night late senator mcconnell indicated that senator alexander, as ranks member of the rules committee had worked for a number of years with senator schumer. i was concerned, as you all know, there were different republican offering going around or discussions with my senators, so i called senator alexander and said what's going on? anyway, to shorten the story a bit. he said i'm representing senator mcconnell. later he asked if i would meet with him and senator schumer and senator mcconnell. i said yes. we met at 9:00. the conversations were extremely cordial, but very preliminary, of course. nothing conclusive but i hope our talking is some solace to the american people and the world. this hasn't happened until now. senator mcconnell asked to meet with me. i was happy to do that. this should be seen as something very positive. even though we don't have anything done yet, and a lot ways to go before anything like that will happen. and i say that's a relative term in minutes, hours, days, we're trying to figure out a way to go forward.

at the white house. attention has shifted to harry reid and the minority leader mitch mcconnell. they have just wrapped up a meeting within the past half hour. reid saying they're getting closer and closer to a deal. minutes ago, president obama said there is some progress on the senate side. we should get the videotape of the president. he's been outside of the white house, any minute now, we're going to bring you his comments as soon as they come in. stand by for that. meanwhile, republican senator bob corker of tennessee says the reid-mcconnell talks under way right now are where a deal is most likely to come from. >> i think at the end of the day, the culmination needs to be something between mcconnell and reid. and i think that all of the side talks that have occurred have helped create an environment for that to happen. so you know, i think -- i know mitch and harry are talking and i think we're about to get to a place where you know, again, we can move something hopefully off the senate floor that's widely bipartisan. i think it's going to take that to having something move productively

like everyone is looking at two long-time veterans to broker a deal, senators harry reid and mitch mcconnell. for today, no big meetings to report. sunday, mcconnell and reid did briefly talk on the phone and aides said it was cordial but inconclusive. president obama also called democratic house leader nancy pelosi. while no one is panicking yet, it's not good. >> they haven't put us on suicide watch yet but they're concerned about us. >> we do have to start talking but we have to do that without being in the midst of a crisis moment and without jeopardizing our full faith and credit. >> he's got to play a more aggressive role. i'm not saying negotiating or whatever you want to call it, get people in a room, show this is serious. >> i don't see why the president is not accepting that, why he's not working with us. i think it's been very difficult to work with him. >> with the president, with senate democrats, with senate republicans, there's a will. we now have to find a way. >> this morning mt. rushmore, the statue of liberty and the grand canyon all back open because states will front the
